Today I rolled out the first beta for my Drupal module, OG Mailinglist, which provides native mailinglist functionality to Drupal similar to Mailman or Google Groups.
OG Mailinglist provides complete email integration for Organic Group-based Drupal sites. Many people find it easier to participate in online conversations through email rather than having to visit a website continually. OG Mailinglist provides this email integration for your site. My company is supporting the development of this module as part of our development of Eduglu, a Drupal-based social learning platform.
OG Mailinglist was started as a student project at BYU for the site I built there, http://island.byu.edu. Since its creation, OG Mailinglist has successfully supported 1000s of discussions.
OG Mailinglist has a rich array of features. Current features include:
Installing and configuring this module requires root access and fairly advanced sysadmin skills. Right now, there is instructions for integrating with Exim4 and Qmail. There’s already efforts at way to support Postfix, so please join in on this issue if you have Postfix expertise.
OG Mailinglist has come a long long way since the project started 1.5 years ago but there’s still plenty of bugs to share. So please pitch in and help make this module even more awesome.Posted September 15, 2010
